FREE // Arcos Quartet: Pre-concert Foyer performance

London Chamber Music Sundays
Music / Sunday, 14 May 2017 - 5:45pm / Concert Level (-2)
Free (not ticketed)

Beethoven String Quartet No.11 in F minor, Op. 95 Serioso

Webern Langsamer Satz 

Arcos Quartet

Laia Braun violin 

David Lopez violin 

Ana Teresa Alves viola 

Kristiana Ignatjeva cello

The main relation to the evening concert is between Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 11, Op. 95 Serioso and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 6 in F minor, Op. 80. They are both written in the same key – F minor – and they share the same mood of extreme unhappiness caused by some sort of suffering: mental or physical. The most similar movement of both works is the Scherzo. Mendelssohns Scherzo has a very present sense of pain and is very comparable to the musical writing in Beethovens Serioso-Scherzo and to its constant sense of terror. 

The quartet will also play something short that will fit well as a sort of encore – Webern’s Langsmer Satz. Webern was part of the Second Viennese School which developed the 20th century serial techniques - the ‘First School being Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. This piece fits the dramatic and romantic character of the concert very well, being described by some as ‘Tristan and Isolde in 11 minutes.


The Arcos Quartet is a young string quartet based in London. Formed in 2014 the quartet has regular coaching with the Head of Strings at the Royal College of Music, Mark Messenger and has participated in masterclasses with musicians such as András Keller, Christoph Richter, Jan Talich and Pavel Fischer. As First Prize winners of the annual RCM String Quartet Music Competition in 2015, the Arcos Quartet has been praised in recent concerts in Europe including at the Chipping Camden Music Festival, the Manchester String Quartet weekend, the Lucca Classica Festival in Italy and the Ipswich School Festival of Music. In 2015, the Arcos Quartet was awarded the Boconnoc Music Award and travelled to Cornwall for a quartet residency. The four members hail from different countries in Europe and are recipients of many scholarships, awards and numerous prizes in international competitions.
